Apologies for Cross-Posting. ================================================= Call for Doctoral Consortium Submissions 36th Annual ACM SIGIR Conference, SIGIR 2013
Dublin, Ireland, 28 July-1 August, 2013 http://www.sigir2013.ie/ http://www.sigir2013.ie/dcsubmissions.html Submission - https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sigir2013dc ================================================= SIGIR is the major international forum for the presentation of new 
research results and for the demonstration of new systems and techniques 
in the broad field of information retrieval (IR). The ACM SIGIR 2013 Doctoral Consortium will provide doctoral students 
with a unique opportunity to have substantive interaction with other 
researchers regarding their proposed dissertation research. The objectives of the Doctoral Consortium are: - To provide a forum where doctoral students can present and discuss 
their research with experienced IR researchers: the members of the 
Doctoral Consortium Program Committee. - To provide students with an opportunity to establish a supportive 
community, including other doctoral students at a similar stage of their 
dissertation research. The Consortium will take place on the same day as the tutorials (Sunday 
28th July 2013), with the format including: student presentations with 
plenary discussions, individual meetings with experienced researchers, 
and highly interactive networking sessions over lunch and breaks with a 
special emphasis on gaining insights regarding career paths after the PhD. Prospective attendees should have written, or be close to completing, a 
thesis proposal (or equivalent). It is desirable that the student is not 
so close to completion that the event would have little impact on their 
work. Before submitting, students should discuss this criterion with 
their advisor or supervisor. Over the years, the number of submissions to the Consortium has grown 
steadily; as a result, the Consortium has become increasingly selective. 
Candidates for the Consortium will be selected based on the potential of 
their research for future impact on the field of information retrieval 
and the likely benefit to the student of participation in the 
Consortium. Priority will be given to students whose research goes 
beyond locally available expertise at their home institution. This selection will be based in part on a written paper, solely authored 
by the student. For each selected student, a one page extended abstract 
of the paper will be published in the SIGIR 2013 Conference Proceedings. 
Extended abstracts will be invited after selection, and should not be 
submitted with the proposal. Doctoral students who submit to the Consortium are permitted to have 
previously published on their research, and are encouraged to submit 
full or short papers to SIGIR 2013 and associated workshops. SIGIR 2013 may be able to provide travel grants for students chosen to 
attend the Consortium. Application details for travel grants will be 
available on the SIGIR web site. Submission Guidelines The submitted paper will be the basis for detailed discussions at the 
Consortium. To get the most out of the discussion, it should include: - Motivation for the proposed research.
- Background and related work (including key references).
- Description of proposed research, including main research questions.
- Research methodology and proposed experiments (where appropriate).
- Specific research issues for discussion at the Doctoral Consortium. In addition, a one page appendix to the paper (placed after the 
references) should include the following: - A detailed statement by the student explaining why they want to 
participate in the SIGIR 2013 Doctorial Consortium at this point in 
their doctoral studies, and how they hope it will contribute to the 
development of the development of their work and potential future career. - A statement by their advisor / supervisor saying how the student would 
benefit by attending the Consortium and explaining what particular 
expertise areas essential to the student’s studies are not available 
locally at the student's home institution. Advisors should also 
specifically state whether the student has written, or is close to 
completing, a thesis proposal (or equivalent), and when they expect the 
student would defend their dissertation if they progress at a typical rate. Format Requirements - Submissions must be written in English and submitted in the ACM 
Conference style (for LaTeX, use the Option 2 style). The paper should 
be no more than 5 pages in length including all figures and references, 
but not including the one page appendix. The first page must contain the 
title of the paper, full author name, affiliation and contact details, 
an abstract of up to 250 words, ACM Computing Reviews categories, and up 
to 3 keywords describing the topic areas. Information about categories 
and keywords can be found in ACM Web pages on the computing 
classification system and in the LaTeX and Word templates. - Doctoral Consortium papers will not be published in the SIGIR 
Conference Proceedings; only one-page extended abstract invited from 
selected students will be published. Doctoral Consortium submissions should be prepared in standard SIGIR 
format available from the ACM Conference style (for LaTeX, use the 
Option 2 style). Proposals should be submitted via EasyChair - https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sigir2013dc Important Dates - Monday 11 March 2013 : Doctoral consortium proposals due - Monday 15 April 2013 : Acceptance notifications - Sunday 28 July 2013 : Doctoral Consortium in Dublin
